S-Curve - Upper Wall Rock Climbing

Continuing the S-Curve tradition, the Upper Wall has mostly sport routes in the 5.10 - 5.11 range. This wall is smaller and more broken than the lower wall. A few routes require a walk-off to the west, but most can be lowered with a single rope.
From the digital sign at the mouth of Big Cottonwood Canyon, drive 4.25 miles up canyon until the very obvious S-Curve in the road. There is a small parking lot and also room to park along the side of the road. Follow the Mill B North Fork trail on the north side of the road to the third switchback as for the Lower Wall. Branch off to the east and follow the length of the Lower Wall to the east. Find a trail that rounds the east end of the Lower Wall and head up a gully to the north to read the Upper Wall.

This line is actually a lot more fun than it looks and not nearly as contrived as it may appear. This is the roof above geronimo on the far east end of the upper s-turns area. From the anchors atop geronimo one will see the obvious line of bolts that diaganol climbers left up and over the roof. Steep but juggy climbing prevails with a fun leftward traverse clipping three bolts. The crux is between the last and second to last bolt at the uppermost lip of the roof and is stout. From below, the hol...[more] Browse More Classics in UT
